    Did Hattori not make some Nenox knives? Or was it only the damascus ones?

    I have both the Hattori and Nenox in 270mm. They are comparable except the Nenox is twice as expensive IIRC.
    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    I love my Nenox petty. My favorite knife. I have never considered it overpriced. YMMV.

    I had always thought Nenox was high priced just because of the finish on the handles. I may be wrong, but they do put a lot in the handles, even the cheaper ones.

    I have never seen one in person so I prob. am talking out my @$#. Hmmm maybe we should have a Nenox passaround.

    Gator claims it's VG1, but that has been disputed. Nenohi just says it is "proprietary high carbon steel".

    good to know chef. I'm glad someone here has said something about the steel.

    I have a white corian 150 which is a nice knife - way overpriced. I think there are better knives to be had in that price range.

    "Are Nenox knives over priced?" Yes. VG steel with a so-so grind. Dave does a rehandle for $175(?)...

    VG-1 or not, Nenox hoyaki I've had was unable to keep up with VG-10 steel. If you're looking for the quality/design brand recognition then it might be worth it, but if you're looking for performance then it's severely overpriced, IMHO of course.

    Info about VG-1 came from long discussions and guesses on KF back then.
